I've got an idea for a gift for my grandpa, but it's pretty average. My mother (his daughter-in-law) suggested that I get him some History Channel DVDs, about WWII or the Korean War (which he is a veteran of.)
And that's fine, but I'd like to get him something special and memorable. He's in his late 70's now, and I'd like to give him something that he'll remember for a long time.
The little bit that I know of his Air Force career is that he was an in-flight mechanic. He was one of the guys that flew on many a mission just in case shit went wrong in mid-air. In my humble opinion...pretty badass.
I don't really have a budget, because I don't know what I'm looking for. So give me some ideas!
